  • if this is your first pregnancy you should not have a plug-- if you have cramping or bleeding you should go to the Er if youre just nervous you should drink some cool fluids and watch a good movie

  • its jelly like, or stringy and sticky. it can have a tinge of blood, it can be clear in color or pink or red. but if theres alot of blood, go straight to the hospital

    everyone has a plug, it prevents bacteria from entering your cervix.

  • I had the milky white discharge while pregnant, it turned out to be a yeast infection even though I had no other syptoms.

    all I remember of my mucus plug was I went to wipe and it looked like I had blown my nose when I had a cold with streaks of blod in it (think sinus infection in winter) Gross I know, but that's the best I can explain it as. It's mucus, so is snot, so they will look similar.

  • everyone has a mucus plug, but not everyone notices it when or if they lose it. and it sounds like it's just extra discharge to me. but, if you are really concerned, call your care provider and ask.
